of the problems with president obama he rolled out of this election thinking he won the election, he can can set the terms of conversation. he needs to remember the republicans control the house of representatives. they understand their political fate is tied to working with the president and being bipartisan. there are certain things they >> first of all, let me say that republicans and democrats have to stop drawing lines in the sand. they have to get in a room and talk to each other. we'll have to make difficult decisions. we have to increase revenue and we have to reduce government spending. those are both facts. that means the lines in the sand both sides are drawing are going to have to stop being drawn and we'll have to reach consensus. the president put forward a proposal he believes will work. republicans need to put forward their proposal. let's start talking instead of drawing lines in the sand. jon: you found irony the fact that michael geithner, the treasury secretary has been sent to be the emissary on all this. >> tim geithner. jon: i'm sorry. >> point man for raising, taxes on th
better leadership. president obama just won re-election, so he can claim he has a mandate. i don't think it's a mandate to raise taxes, increase the size of government and put us further in debt. that's his argument. that's the process of self government. the american people will have to take a grip, not just washington, but look at how bad things are in illinois and california and new york. several of our states are very, very bads shape. >> greta: california will be interesting to watch, because they have a democratic governor, democratic legislatures now, and they've got big problems. so california is -- the democrats in california have a chance to either, you know, make things look really good or let things look very bad. at least i'm keeping my eye on that state. >> that's a key indicator of the future. i can tell you, a place like texas, they're thrilled the number of californians leaving and moving to texas. that's happening all across the west. california is exporting some of its hardest-working, best entrepreneurs, because they've given up. i was with a man just yesterday in los
on the u.s. consulate in libya. >>> president obama welcomes election rival mitt romney to the white house today. they'll have a private lunch together. the president promised in his victory speech to meet with romney after their bitter campaign and consider his ideas for making government more efficient. >>> and yet another arrest this morning for lindsay lohan. the troubled starlet was charged with assault around 4:00 a.m. in manhattan. she allegedly punched another woman in the face at a new york city nightclub. the other woman was not arrested and was not taken to the hospital. >>> and now for a look at what's trending today. our quick round-up of what has you talking online. jimmy kimmel's going viral with this blind taste test, mocking starbucks' new $7 a cup premium coffee. >> which is the super premium and why? >> i want to say it's this one because it has more of a richer taste. it tastes stronger, more premium, i guess. >> okay. i should mention that we didn't even bother to get the $7 coffee. we got a pot of regular coffee and poured the exact same coffee in both cups. >> if you
and in his first post-election interview president obama again rejected the house republican counteroffer that is on the table. >> unfortunately the speaker's proposal right now is still out of balance. we're going to have to see the rates on the top 2% go up and we're not going to be able to get a deal without it. >> let's hope he sticks to it. >> g.o.p. leaders aren't only dealing with the president and congressional democrats they're dealing with a split within their own ranks. more conservative republicans don't want party leaders to compromise anymore than they think they already have. even though the republican plan offers up $800 billion in new taxes without upping tax rates at all tea party leaders say higher taxes shouldn't be in any form because it is not what republicans stand for. south carolina senator jim demint went so far as to call on supporters of his senate conservative fund to call senate republicans and ask them to oppose what he's calling the boehner tax hike. the looming question for re

because obama clearly sees that he has a mandate out of the election on fiscal cliff issues. even though it wasn't a huge issue in the debate the white house is behaving like it has that mandate. what you have been seeing is republicans showing signs of flexibility and i am not just talking john boehner saying revenue is on the table. we have republican senators saying they will stand up to the grover norquist tax pledge. they're willing to break it which is pretty big news. we also have the influential member of congress, republican tom cole saying we have got to agree to extend the tax cut just for those people making $250,000 and below and letting the more wealthy be taxed. definitely flexibility but what you see from democrats is an unwillingness to do serious entitlement reform that would lead to reductions in spending. they want to kick the can down the road and do more of the next year with the vague promises. dennis: the think republicans will be willing to agree upfront to more tax revenue or higher tax rates as we go without a firm cap on entitlement reform? >> that is the big
or conservative. every single president since carter claimed to be, quote, born again. this was the first election since carter where neither candidate, nor president obama nor mitt romney claimed to be a born again christian. there was a choice there that was very different. >> how would you feel if a muslim president were to be elected? >> depends on what his views are on politics. you're not voting for a pastor. you're voting for a president. when i go to a doctor i don't ask the guy are you a christian? i ask him, have you done this surgery before? >> you did the invocation for president obama's inauguration in 2009. any sense to go back here in a few weeks? >> no, i'm sure i won't. many people don't know four years earlier i did an inauguration prayer for president bush at the beginning of his inauguration, but nobody noticed it. >> i want to talk about the coarseness in our culture a little bit. >> yeah. >> tyler clemente at rutgers university, the student who killed himself, very sad thing. his parents wrote that they left their evangelical church recently because they felt the beliefs on h
the election you were asked whether if obama won taxes would have to go up. i are acknowledging that they will. >> the day after the election i came here and made it clear that the republicans would put revenue on the table as a way to begin to move the process to get this resolved. >> my question is, what message do you have for people who look at the negotiating position and believe it's inevitable you'll have to accept some compromise on tax. >> revenue is on the table. but revenue was only on the table if there was a serious spending cut as part of this agreement. it has to be part of the agreement. we have a debt crisis. we are spending too much. and while we are willing to put revenue on the table, we have to recognize is the spending that's out of control. >> roughly what size spending cuts do you think it would take to reach a deal on the fiscal cliff? do you think that at least the promise of spending cuts has to be included in this level deal at this time? >> i don't think there's -- it's productive for either side to lay out hard lines in terms of what the size of the spending cuts
